This multi-trade course provides the 6 hours of approved continuing education required for license renewal. It is designed for all Kentucky electrical contractors, hvac license holders and plumbing license holders. The course contains the following three classes:
- Running an HVAC-Plumbing or Electrical Business in Kentucky: A two-hour review of best practices in running a business as well as covering numerous specific laws and regulations for Kentucky businesses. The class offers professional development for those already running a business in Kentucky and a basic grounding in running a business for those just starting out.

Finally, the class briefly reviewed each of the code books individually with a selection of important code provisions.

The class examined the nature of risks posed by hazardous substances likely to be encountered on job sites, physical strains typical to the trades, and causes of injury and death at job sites. In each case, the class also provides specific recommendations on how to avoid injury or illness from these hazards and how to respond in the case of injury or illness. The class finishes with an exercise created by OSHA on spotting workplace hazards.
